Year 5

My name is Mr Hall and I am the Year 5 teacher as well as also being the Assistant Headteacher. I am very lucky to be supported by Ms Shields, who also teaches the class Mon – Thurs afternoons.

This year, we have lots of exciting learning planned – you can find out what we will be doing by clicking on the ‘Long Term Plan’ button below.

PE: Y5 will be doing PE on a Thursday afternoon – please ensure that your child comes to school in their PE kit for the day.

At Holy Cross, we are incredibly passionate about fostering a love of reading in all children. We also know how difficult it can be to choose reading books for your child, which is why we have created ‘recommended reads’ for each year group. Click on the button below for more information. 

Many thanks,

Mr Hall


In Y5, children are expected to practise their times tables each night on Times Tables Rockstars for at least 5 minutes. They are also expected to read each night, either their own reading book or on Read Theory, for at least 20 minutes. 

Additional homework will be given as and when I feel it will be beneficial for the children. 


As you know, reading is a huge focus in our school and it can have a fantastic impact on children’s learning across the different curriculum areas.

In class 5, reading records should be completed daily by parents/carers and can be done by clicking on this link: https://forms.gle/XBB5KuWjLQkMjsn47

Children can either access reading online on Read Theory or a levelled reading book/their own book. If you would like any book recommendations, I will be more than happy to help!
